Closing

John Bellone Musical Instruments, 1964-2019

“Hi, John Bellone here. Over the past few months, there has been a lot of speculation about the future of Bellone’s Music. After 55 years of our family serving the London music community, I’d like to take a moment of your time to announce my retirement. It may not be easy for some of you to hear, but this also means that this will be our last holiday season. It has given me great joy to watch generations of musicians grow up in London, and this was one of the hardest decisions we’ve ever had to make. The original plan was to make a fresh start at a new location in the new year, but after a lot of soul-searching we started to realize that it just wasn’t in the cards.

We’ll continue to operate through the spring, and in the meantime well be offering the best prices in Canada on premium guitars, amps and more. you can visit ‘https://bellonesmusic.com/closing‘ for more information about warranties, receipts, and service on recent purchases. We hope you’ll stop by the shop for a visit in the coming months. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your musical journey over the years – it really has been a special experience and we hope you’ll treasure your memories of Bellone’s Music as much as we do. Have a happy holiday season, and we’ll see you soon.”
